But with school closures, lockdowns and the financial insecurities that my generation face, is it really worth spending money on lessons now?
According to the personal finance site NimbleFins, if you do not block book lessons the average cost across Great Britain is £27 an hour. Block bookings bring it down to £23. The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) says the average learner takes 47 hours of driving lessons before passing their test. That adds up to between £1,081 and £1,269.
According to NimbleFins, the average premium for comprehensive insurance cover for an 18-year-old driver in 2020 was £1,871 a year.
